“Amazing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2015 NEW

We took a car from Costa Adeje and drove up to mount Teide.
It just shows you a completely different side of Tenerife. There were forest national park areas on the way up - and worth stopping off for a wander as there were some fantastic views, not to mention kids playground and football pitch.
On Teide that views are just incredible - watch out for the temperature as it can get really cold, down to freezing, so you need to take a few layers.
I didn't take the cable car so can't comment on that.
Towards the top was a fairly inconspicious Visitor Centre. It didn't look much from the outside, however it's well worth a visit - there was a short film, plus loads of information about how the islands were formed - it was a good museum/information source. The visitor centre was free.

Note - There are loads of cyclists around - home from home a bit like Box Hill!

“High”

Drove through clouds to get to top could not see other vechiles until a foot away. But once through cloud it was very hot and spectacular views. Well worth the drive.

“A lunar experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2015 NEW

The volcanic scenery, geology, fauna and flora are an unforgetable experience and the information centre 200m along the road from El Pottillo is an excellent place to start. It is very well done, free and is TOTALLY uncomercialised. The air is thin and the sun very strong due to the altitude. Stay away from the cafes which are expensive very busy with coch parties and not at all friendly. This is more than made up for by the spectacular scenery

“The beauty of nature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2015 NEW

The Teide National Park is a must. Visiting this area give you the opportunity to see the nature in it's beauty. You start climbing the road and in few minutes you are above the clouds and see the mountain . It is more than 3000 meters high and you continue driving . The highlight of your visit will be when you see the rock named "Finger of God" so be ready to walk few minute and make your great picture of this rock and others. It is also good place to take more pictures of the Tiede mountain.

“Beautiful views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015 NEW

Took family to top of Tiede. Most glorious day to make trip to the top. First time that we had managed to get on Cable car, residents rates good bargain. Got a bit light headed at top tho and didn't feel right all the time, but glad that I made the trip. The views are absolutely stunning.
On this trip we managed to see 5 of the Canary Islands - all so clear.
